Google Through the Google Play Store, the next version of Android has been confirmed: Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. I'm hoping for just a single new feature: something to address the update mess. I don't care how, as long as they do something.

Having worked in the telecommunications area for a few years I can only confirm this.

It is all about selling more device units, not OS upgrades.

Still they could then charge for the upgrades, but that would be the device manufacturers doing, not the operators. And the operators can care less for what you have as mobile, as long as you can generate enough revenue for them.

OS upgrades are not revenue on most mobile operators eyes.

They never liked what Apple did to them, and that is one reason why the sales channels do not push WP7 phones, as WP7 has a similar model.
